commented on The World's End: Pints, Nostalgia, and Killer Robots
This movie is not that great. The bad guys are initially incredibly hard to defeat and then subsequently as easy to kill as a single punch. And the ending! It made me mad how they defeated the bad guys with a drunk rant. Just ridiculous. If you want an apocalyptic comedy, This is the End is such a better movie.
commented on Zimmerman Verdict? I Wish Ted Nugent Would Shut His F*cking Fool Mouth
I was an assistant for a Details magazine photo shoot. The Nuge had a gun in one hand and a cross bow in the other - we were at a country club in Eastern WA. There was a US Representative there telling Ted what an American Hero he was and I was rolling my eyes so hard.
The photographer asked me to keep my cool until he had his shot and then I could say whatever I wanted. When the photographer gave me the nod I waited for Ted to say something else stupid and it didn't take long.
"I'm playing in San Francisco tomorrow night as a civic duty," he bragged, "because even the fags can't help but love pussy after listening to my music."
"Oh really?" I asked, barely hiding my rage and fear of insulting on a man with a gun and a crossbow next to him. "I'm a fag and I've heard your music and I still like sucking dick."
He was shocked. Stunned into silence. He mumbled something pleasant and then the photographer and I packed everything up and got out of there. I was shaking for 20 minutes. Calling out bullshit is scary in Republican country.
commented on Saint Genet Re-Creates "Shoot"
It'd be one thing if Mitchell did this only as a way to draw attention to himself but it seems like the next logical step in what he's been pursuing for the last several years. The leeches, the arrows, the spitting, the slapping, the punching: pain is a language that Implied Violence and Saint Genet speak fluently. If you want to have dialogue with art from the past then you have to create the dialogue - that's all I see going on here.
commented on America's Next Drag Superstar Is...
Okay, so if that second video is Jinkx's *real* reaction, does that mean that RuPaul crowned all three of them at the taping and only edited it to be Jinkx for broadcast? That ending felt really weird...
